    Gareth made our wedding magical

    Gareth performed during cocktail hour, dinner and for our first dance at our wedding this past weekend, October 10, 2020. We received more compliments on his performance than almost anything else! Everyone loved him and was sad we didn’t hire him for the full night!
    Our first dance was also so magical because of his performance of our wedding song and I can’t stop reminiscing over it!
    So many aspects of our wedding had to change due to COVID, but our day turned out perfect and Gareth contributed to how memorable it will be for us and our guests. We cannot recommend him enough!

    Wedding Music

    What an amazing musician and an even better person! Gareth provided us with the perfect soundtrack for our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier! Because of the pandemic, we only had 40 days to plan our wedding, but once we got in touch with Gareth, we knew the entertainment part was NOT going to be something we had to worry about. He even magically pulled off some of our specific song requests, including putting his own unique spin on the Game of Thrones theme song to make it wedding appropriate! It was such a unique and fun moment for everyone involved, and that Thrones to Beyoncé transition will certainly be a memory for us to cherish and smile at forever.

    We (and all our guests) can’t say enough good things about Gareth. You killed it!!

    Gareth set the tone for a wonderful evening!

    Gareth is an amazing musician! He completely set the tone to the wedding day. He learned our wedding songs in under two months and I now love his versions even better then the originals.

    Once my parents mentioned a lyric by Bob Marley in their speech - he didn’t miss a beat, and played the full song, Three Little Birds shortly after. This was an amazing touch we all cherished.

    Gareth - we cannot thank you enough!!

    What A Wonderful Experience!

    Gareth was empathetic, kind, professional and so flexible in the duration of this process. From explaining regular wedding protocols, to assisting with song selection and the day of the performance made my walk down the aisle so memorable! I would happily recommend Gareth to anyone who is looking for someone who is talented and professional to make their day special.

    Our Wedding Day

    We had an awesome day and we’re so happy you were a major part of it. Our family and friends loved the song choices and we meant it when we announced that you were played all the ‘heaters’
    Definitely a highlight of our wedding
    Thanks so much
    Jay and Terah

    Incredible.

    Gareth went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. He learned several songs specifically for us - and it really made the ceremony unique. Many of our guests were so impressed with the quality of music, and he played covers of all different genres (chosen by us), a little something in there for everyone - from Drake to to the Eagles to Blink 182. Gareth was incredibly easy to work with, very responsive and very flexible. Out of all of the vendors we had for our wedding Gareth was one of our absolute favourites. We would recommend him to anyone for their big day!

    Beyond incredible!

    An absolute talent! Gareth played the cocktail hour and reception at our wedding in the Fall and it was a highlight of the evening. All of our guests asked where we’d found him and commented on how memorable he’d helped to make our first dance! Gareth is just incredible and I cannot recommend him strongly enough. He was quick to reply to emails, maintained communication with us, and was really easygoing about working with our timeline, including speeches and dinner courses. We requested that Gareth learned to play our first song — and I have never heard it sound so beautiful! It was perfect. He also learned a song for our parent-child dances and timed his set perfectly so I could share special moments with both my mom and dad. Great music, great guy—thank you, Gareth!

    Endless compliments on his performance. Your guests will be very happy you booked him

    Gareth was an incredible part of our wedding. We decided to add him for the ceremony and cocktail hour before the DJ came and it really completed the feel of the ceremony and made the cocktail hour enjoyable for everyone. Strongly recommend Gareth for your special day, definitely worth the money.

    Best at communication, organization and lots of song choices!

    We had hired a DJ for the reception but didn't really give the ceremony and cocktail hour too much thought until a few months leading up to our wedding. We didn't want to hit "play" on a Spotify list so I reached out to pretty much every solo guitarist on Wedding Wire. We were very lucky that Gareth was available because he fit our style perfectly. He not only has over 650 songs for you to pick from but he will also learn songs for you. In comparison to the other musicians I talked with on Wedding Wire I can tell you Gareth responds very quickly, his rates are amazing and he's very organized and professional. Our guests gave us compliments on his performance all night long and he really was that extra special touch we didn't know we needed. Thanks Gareth for adding to our big day. I'm only sorry I couldn't listen to you more during the cocktail hour.
